Franklin Water Week 2024

May 5 - May 11

Franklin Water Week returns from May 5th to May 11th, 2024.

Join the Cumberland River Compact in celebrating Water Week in the City of Franklin! Businesses and organizations across the city are invited to share the importance of clean and abundant water.

How to Participate:

Explore Your Water System: Do you know where your water comes from? Join us on the first day of Water Week as we share about where you get your water and how the natural and man-made water system helps keep our water clean.

 

 

Go Green for Clean Water:  From big park projects to small home gardens, everyone can make an impact on water quality! Learn about projects happening in your community and the techniques that you can implement at home.

 

 

Enjoy River Friendly Farms: Good food and clean water — what more do you need? Take a look at local farmers who are feeding your community and stewarding the land.

 

 

Clean Up for Clean Water: Gather your friend, neighbors, or coworkers and commit to adopting a local stream segment! With our Adopt-a-Stream program, you are paired up with a local stream segment and host clean-ups or other stewardship activities to help your local waterway.

 

 

Experience Your Water: It’s time to get out and experience water in Franklin! Find a local spot to get on the water, enjoy a waterway, and experience local wildlife.

Get Involved:

Businesses and community organizations can participate in Franklin Water Week in many different ways! You can share information on your social media channels, hang up a Water Week poster, join our Adopt-a-Stream program in your neighborhood, donate a prize to giveaway throughout the week, or host the Cumberland River Compact staff in your store.

If you are a business or community organization interested in participating in Franklin Water Week, you can request access to marketing materials or reach out to Ellen.Ward@cumberlandrivercompact.org.
